My son rarely requests knit items. So when he does, I'm happy to oblige. I present the Dead Fish Hat:
He's not home this afternoon, so I'll add another picture of him wearing it later.
Pattern: Fish Hat from Knitty
Yarn: Only Stretch from Schachenmayr nomotta. This yarn has a built in stretch. I've never knit with yarn like this before. It took a little getting used to, but the finished product doesn't seem to be effected. (The stripes are misc worsted yarn from my stash.)
ETA: Picture of Gregory with hat!
